Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 Review

HSPA+ Only (SM-P907A)     See other variants reviews Score: 8.03/10

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is a high-level tablet launched some years ago, coming with a high-tech Octa-Core processor (they are really a Quad-Core running at 1900 MHz and another Quad-Core ticking at 1.3 GHz), a large 12.2-inches screen, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front facing camera.

The NotePRO 12.2 is extremely thin, with a thickness of just 0.31". The NotePRO 12.2 is a very compact tablet, taking into consideration it packs a 12.2" screen and it is just 11.64 inches long and 8.03" wide. This tablet feels a bit heavy for a tablet this size, with a weight of 26.56 oz.

Samsung ships this tablet with a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa chip, packing a great Octa-Core processing unit (composed by a Quad-Core running at 1.9 gigahertz and a Quad-Core running at 1.3 GHz) with a huge 3 GB of RAM. Helping with graphic rendering, it also counts with an ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU ticking at 600 MHz. An excellent feature of this device is the 64 GB big internal storage memory and an SD card slot, which allows the user to store hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without worrying about running out of space at all.

This tablet features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 MP front facing camera. It also shoots videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. Additionally, the camera has a couple of interesting characteristics like auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

The NotePRO 12.2 is equipped with a interesting 1600 x 2560 12.2" screen, providing this device with a nice image quality. This screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 features wi-fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) fast connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection, that is a bit slower 4G type or fast 3G data connection, over HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The NotePRO 12.2 uses a SIM card for GSM carriers.

This tablet has a 9500 mAh large non-removable battery providing this tablet an incredible battery life. An issue to consider is that the NotePRO 12.2's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts losing capacity, though with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new tablet before that becomes an issue.

This tablet also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS (Global Positioning System), Infrared Transmitter and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is being sold for $ 249, a real bargain for a device as good as this. If you need a device for work, need a device to majorly use social networks and internet browsing, want it to take lots of photos or are looking for a gaming tablet, you will definitely love this tablet.
